I don't know if this is the right place to put this or even if it's allowed but I thought I'd try it anyway as I have no idea where else to look!
What I am looking for is a singer/songwriter to help me compose and original song for a new Visual Novel.
This Visual Novel will not contain voice as I feel it would do better as just a read through, but there is one particular scene in it where the boyfriend of the Protagonist sings a song to her, something he has written and composed just for her.
Info on the Visual Novel:
It is still a WIP - But I wanted to get this out of the way ASAP
This Visual Novel is titled Swan Song, it is about a young girl who has just days to live and must choose who she wishes to spend that time with, in this particular case it is her boyfriend Nick Florence.
Nick is 19 years old, just a year older then the protagonist, they have been together for 3 years but due to her illness she has been pushing him away, not wanting him to be devastated by her death, Nick writes the song feeling angry, hopeless and in love and before the end of the VN ends up singing it to her as a surprise.
I have no specific sound in mind for this character but as he is 19 try to keep him sounding that way, no really deep or really high pitched voices although anything in between these is fine.
What I need from you:
Itwould help immensely if you were able to compose and write lyrics as well as sing them, I'm looking for a melancholy sound, full of love and pain and hope for the future. If need be I can write the lyrics but I can't compose music. A solo guitar would be best, no need for a whole bunch of instruments.
This project will be paid, we can discuss a fee for the copyright of the song, credit will be attributed to the singer/songwriter as long as I am free to use the song for promo and in the game.
To audition all you need to do is send me a cover sample of one of two songs:
Christina Perry - Jar of Hearts
